In 1981, Scott City Senior Citizens Transportation System, Inc. started in answer to a need for transportation in the Scott City area, with one van and one RSVP volunteer.

In 1985, the system expanded into the Chaffee area and changed the name to Scott County Transit System, Inc.

In 1988, the system once again expanded, this time into Sikeston and the surrounding rural areas to provide transportation service to the entire county.
